PA Full Lower Elementary Student Survey

STUDENTS, skip this page (hit
at the bottom of the page).
This survey is suitable for grades 1 through 3. It is best administered by reading it aloud to the whole classroom. It will take 40-50 minutes for most grade 1 classes, 30-40 minutes for grade 2 and less for grade 3. Many special education students can complete this survey, though they may need some help or more time.
Someone other than a regular teacher should administer the survey. This is to ensure that students feel confident that their answers are confidential – that not even their teacher(s) will see them.
In many cases, 2 people will be required to administer the survey, one to read it aloud, and one to proctor. The reader should read at a speed that ensures that most students can keep up, but not so slow that competent readers get bored waiting. The ideal reading speed is usually faster than you would initially think. The proctor should observe the classroom (moving around as little as possible) and make sure that every student appears to understand the instructions, and is completing the survey correctly (that is checking an answer to each question before moving onto the next question).
Please have every student click NEXT to go to the next page at the same time. This keeps all students on the same page at all times. Slow students may not complete every question on each page -- but it is better to let them change pages when everyone else does so that the whole class finishes together. You may want to schedule special sessions for special education or very slow students.
Note that it is the responsibility of the School or School District to ensure that all regulations regarding obtaining informed consent of parents for student participation in surveys are followed. Generally, these require informing parents of the survey and its content, and allowing them at least two weeks to deny or give permission for their child’s participation. Whether or not signed permission is required depends on the content of the survey, State or local law, and School District or School policies.
The next page MUST be read aloud to students and an effort made to ensure that students understand the voluntary nature of the task before the survey is administered.
After each practice question, check that all students understand the format before moving on to the next page.
For questions with multiple rows, you can help students by saying the color of the row (blue or pink).
